Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is first Asian to win the award.

Son Heung-min has become the first Asian recipient of the EA SPORT player of the month award after scoring four goals in September to claim the prize.

The South Korea international enjoyed an inspired run of form for Tottenham Hotspur last month, scoring four goals and providing an assist as they won all three matches in September.

After receiving the award, Son said: "This is my dream to get the award, I want to get it a second time, a third time. When I take the award home my family will be crazy like you can't believe: they will be really happy."

The midfielder score twice in a 4-0 win at Stoke City to start the month, with his second nominated for the Carling Goal of the month award. He then helped Spurs to a 1-0 win over Sunderland and scored twice again as Pochettino's men claimed a 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough.

On being the first Asian player to win the award, Son said: "Many players deserved it. Ji Sung-Park had great seasons.
"I can't believe I'm the first player from Asia to win it, I'm very thankful for the support. They support every day, every weekend, every game."

Son claimed the award after votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and the public were combined.
He was picked from a shortlist of five, featuring Kevin De Bruyne, Adam Lallana, Romelu Lukaku and Theo Walcott.
